Microneedling Stimulates the Body’s Natural Collagen Production
CHANNEL YOUR SKIN’S NATURAL HEALING POWER WITH MICRONEEDLING!
When we are young, it is easy to take the health and radiantly smooth appearance of our skin for granted; however, over time, we begin to notice the unwelcome aesthetic effects of the natural aging process and accumulated environmental damage, which inevitably become increasingly prominent over the years, detracting from the youthfully supple, even texture of our skin.
In the past, corrective measures to address these skin concerns were limited to invasive surgical measures that were associated with significant post-treatment downtime and a heightened risk of procedural complications. Fortunately, technological developments within the medical aesthetics industry are constantly progressing, and have produced cutting edge, revitalizing skin treatments such as Microneedling. Microneedling harnesses the body’s natural wound-healing mechanism to facilitate a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that is safe, effective, and appropriate for all skin types!
Microneedling has been shown to improve the appearance* of:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Hyperpigmentation (skin darkening and discoloration)
- Stretch marks
- Facial and body scarring (acne/injury/surgical/burn)
In order to reap the full benefits of this revolutionary technology, it is important to have your microneedling procedure performed by knowledgeable and experienced practitioners, such as Dr. Burton Sundin, Dr. Reps Sundin, and the professional staff at the Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center (MBody), with office locations in Richmond and Vienna, Virginia. The Doctors created MBody as the non-surgical division of the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery to better serve patients seeking to reverse the aging process without the cost and requisite downtime needed for cosmetic surgery.
HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK?
After sustaining an injury, our body is instinctively programmed to repair itself by increasing production of two key proteins (collagen and elastin), which then act to dissolve the damaged tissue and replace it with new, healthy cells. Microneedling treatments channel the reparative power of this natural healing response by using tiny, stainless steel needles to create precisely targeted micro-injuries, which then initiate the body’s wound-healing response and the production of new collagen, transforming and improving the condition and appearance of the skin.
The idea of any needles near your face may seem somewhat alarming, but there is no need for concern–the depth of these miniscule micro-injuries has been carefully calculated to ensure a comfortable, pain-free treatment while preventing new scar tissue from forming. Moreover, by creating hundreds of vertical microscopic channels in the top layer of the skin (epidermis), microneedling treatments provide the added benefit of improving skincare product penetration, thereby enhancing the future efficacy of your in-office skin rejuvenation services, as well as your at-home skincare regimen!
Microneedling technology is equipped with a cluster of micro-needles on its tip, offering a safe and effective treatment experience due to its vertical microneedling technology. The inherent adjustability of microneedling treatments enables practitioners to account for differences in skin types and thickness, enhancing the precision of the treatment and expanding the range of treatment sites to include even highly sensitive areas, such as around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Microneedling’s specialized vertical delivery system also allows the needles to easily penetrate scar tissue and promote healing without producing additional scarring or discomfort.
Microneedling is a versatile technology, with broad applications that are not limited to the delicate facial areas, but can also be utilized to lift, tighten, and revitalize the skin on the body (i.e. arms, face, neck, décolletage, hands, legs, abdomen and back), making it an excellent option for patients suffering from acne scars on the back and/or stretch marks on the body. Microneedling has also proven effective as a supplementary treatment for traditional hair restoration and regeneration procedures (i.e. hair transplantation, follicular unit extraction (FUE), topical hair growth medications). Microneedling can boost the efficacy of these hair loss treatments and maximize the patient’s hair restoration results.*
